The pilot project of an underground Wi-Fi connection was finished at the end of 2018. The Prague Public Transit Company (PTTC) had tested the project in six metro stations since autumn 2017. During the field tests a seventh station, Muzeum, was added. PTTC concluded in the project evaluation that the Wi-Fi connection will not be extended in its current form. Cooperation with a commercial partner will be established before the end of 2019. The project included testing push messages in order to better inform the passengers in the case of extraordinary events. 

The priority is to cover the whole underground system with an LTE signal, which should be achieved in 2022. This is however a project of mobile phone operators where Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) provides maximum cooperation with regard to the metro operation. Currently, there is LTE signal coverage at the new metro section of the A line between Dejvická and Motol stations and at the C line between Muzeum and Roztyly.
